Wicked Weed Named Hottest Brewery
An Asheville brewery is making waves across the state and even the nation.
Wicked Weed Brewing was featured in an article Wednesday in the Raleigh News and Observer being called the state's hottest brewery. It's been open for less than a year.
Earlier this month, it took home a gold medal from the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.
"We were lucky enough to come back with a gold medal in American Style Brett Beer. That's the first gold medal for Asheville, which is Beer City, so we felt pretty proud to bring that back to a community that's really given us so much in craft beer," said Walt Dickinson.
"You go into making beer and as a brewer your dream is to win a medal at the Great American Beer Festival so for Walt and I it's a huge goal for so long to achieve it in the first year we were just over the moon," said Luke Dickinson.
Great American Beer Festival, North Carolina took home four medals, including Wicked Weed's gold.
